Quite an eventful night at Bar Charlie for this round of trivia! We had eight teams, one of whom is currently in the running for the Tournament of Champions in LA!!
I Wish This Mic... and Team 5-1-0 both started out strong out of the gate, gathering 14 points each in the first round - that's all correct answers, going double-or-nothing, and getting the two bonus points for having a team number registered on KingTrivia.com, and NAS*D not far behind with 12 points (just missing that team number)!!
In Round 2, newcomers Beciderself cashed in on the double-or-nothing for the picture round, as did Festivus For The Rest Of Us and Team 5-1-0. There must be something about Mary...
You'd think Seattlites would know a thing or two about Stormy Weather in Round 3. And most of them did pretty well. But I'm proud of you all for at least all getting Seattle Storm correct as our WNBA team!
Guess Who was a good one this week, and I even overheard one member of Festivus For The Rest Of Us saying Bill Murray after the first clue (worth 10 points), but unfortunately for them, they didn't believe her until we got down to the 6 point clue.
In Round 5, only two teams were able to find the correct connection between The Princess Bride, Wrap It Up, Shirt, Tenting, Slip 'N Slide, Halter, Weddings, Sweater, and Sheath as types of Dresses. I guess it helps if you get all the first 9 answers correct first, haha.
The Matching Round caused some heated discussion this week about the difference between a spokesperson and someone who's merely been in an ad for a product. Luckily I have the last word on such things, and after reviewing the play on the field, I reversed my first ruling, allowing Team 5-1-0 the point (amongst grumbling from some other teams).
And the Final Round caused LOTS of cheering when the question was announced - these people know their seltzers!
In the end, it was Team 5-1-0 in 1st place, Festivus For The Rest Of Us in 2nd, and I Flushed My Toilet 15 Times in 3rd this week.
Great job to everyone for having the most fun bar trivia in all of Seattle! I wouldn't be here without you guys. And big thank you to those of you who didn't come for trivia, but stayed to play anyway! Hope to see you back next week 🙂
